Fitness together of Melrose and Burlington recently held a 25 day Fitness and Fat Burning Challenge. Each participant donated $20.00. Each participant was given a nutrition plan, mini workouts at home and the opportunity to add additional small group sessions at no extra cost. The winner of the Challenge was also allowed to identify their Charity to receive any amounts raised. Brendan Stapleton, the owner of both facilities, also promised to match the total raised. Brendan, a Wilmington resident noted, “We wanted to have a Challenge that provided a benefit to our clients with an additional benefit to a charity of choice for the winner”.
In 25 days participants collectively lost over 75 lbs. The winner of the challenge, from the FT Melrose designated the “National Medical Services Memorial Foundation” as the recipient charity. A total of $500.00 was raised and with the match a check was sent to the Foundation for $1,000.00.
